UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 2011 Vintage, Bottle #0609
Tasted on 3/31/14 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales, this was not a cheap one. Pours a bright, almost cranberry juice colored amber, letting just a tinge of light through, with a thin tan head that slowly recedes to very thin lace before completely disappearing. The nose is a very matured sour red wine vinegar with plenty of vanilla and cinnamon oak, vinous fruity sour cherry, there is some caramel malt to this, super complex with a touch of dried fruit oxidation (this really does remind me of an Amarone). The flavor is a bit sweeter, focused on the ripe cherry, caramel malt, dried fruit, vanilla and cinnamon oak, with the red wine vinegar, and some lemon citrus sour notes providing the mid-palate and then the sweeter dried Amarone notes returning on the back of the palate. The body is nearly full with lightly faint carbonation, a lot of oaky tannin, and a long complex finish that hits all of the nutty oxidation, sour, and sweet notes from the nose and the palate.

2011 Bottle, from Systembolaget. Hazy reddish brown with a quickly diminishing white head. Funky aroma and taste with cherries, acetone, sour raspberries, oak, almond and balsamico. Soft, tart finish.

rafael52 (798) - Łódź, POLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Kolor: brunatny, zmętniony, woda z kałuży.
Piana: niska, szybko znika.
Zapach: sporo wiśni, czerwonych owoców, estrów, trochę rozpuszczalnika, lekkie aromaty korzenne.
Smak: wytrawne, cierpkie, taniniczne, ściągające, również sporo czerwonych owoców, wiśni, lekka nuta korzenna, dość intensywna kwaśność. Wysycenie: wysokie, wylatuje z butelki.
Ogólnie: bardzo dobre piwo, ale prze gazowanie sprawia, że wygląda jak błoto i sprawia dużo trudności z otwarciem butelki.

Hoppy_Luke (1088) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Wypiłem małą próbkę tegoż piwa. Ale wystarczającą, żeby być bardzo pozytywnie zaskoczonym. Kolor ciemnoczerwony, wpadający w brąz. Aromat kwaśny, owocowy. W smaku bardzo zróżnicowane. Są kwaśne owoce - najbardziej wyczułem wiśnie. Nuty winne i beczkowe. Bardzo fajne! Z pewnością do powtórzenia!

SvanteL (217) - SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
Grumlig, rödbrun med litet skum. Syrlig doft med klara körsbärsinslag, lite kanel och ättika. Smaken är rejält syrlig med lite ättika, lite kryddig, mycket körsbär, lite kanel, viss fatkaraktär. En häftig suröl med många intressanta smaker. 2014-04-09

ClubGonzo (5305) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
Bottle. Slow gusher. Pours a murky pink-hued brown aroma. Aroma is balsamico, acetic acid, red berries, boozy cherry notes and hints of stone pits and coca-cola, wood and almonds. Taste is sour balsamico notes, cherries, horsey stable tones, wood, vanilla and hints of cherry pits, sawdust and raisins. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice and original sour from Ducato; rough, rustic and intense.

Tap at Erzbierschof. Very sour indeed, with some bitter almond. Punchy, rather a bit too much. Almost flat.

Looks great, smells quite strange but what a fabulous taste. Really sour and gets better with each mouthful. However be careful it goes down easily. Lovely beer and worth a try even if you don’t normally like the "sours".

Biroholik (718) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Blend piwa Krisopolis leżakowanego przez 2 lata w beczkach z dodatkiem wiśni Morello z piwem Ultima Luna (Barley Wine leżakowany w beczkach po czerwonym, wytrawnym winie Amarone z dodatkiem wiśni Marasca Morello.
Kolor czerwono-brazowy. Niewielka biała piana. W aromacie czuć kwaśne ciemne owoce, masę wiśni i trochę winnych nut. W smaku owocowe, kwaśne, trochę cierpkie. Na pierwszy plan wychodzą kwaśne wiśnie i czerwone wino. W oddali czuć beczkowe nuty. Po pewnym czasie smak przechodzi już w bardziej octowy. Świetny i wielopoziomowy trunek.
